Besides enjoying a great game by the TiCats, I enjoyed a pre-game incident I witnessed in the west end zone.
My brother-in-law and I were standing along the barrier in the west end zone watching the Lions as they warmed up. As it ended and most of the team started heading toward their dressing room, middle linebacker Javier Glatt (#6) casually ran towards us.
We weren't razzing him or the team so we knew he wasn't after us so I thought that perhaps he knew the people standing next to us, but apparently he did not .
He just ran up, handed his playing gloves to a young boy (8-10 years old?) and then turned to run back to the B.C. locker room.
The boy looked surprised and kept looking up to who I assume was his father and back to his new gloves (looked at gloves, father, gloves, father).
The "father" and his friend were quite pleased and amused at Glatt's gesture and the boy finally smiled, realizing he just scored a pro football souvenir.
IMO, pretty classy of Glatt.
Though I'm still glad his team lost
